20' x 30". Asymmetrical. She's a big girl but what you really need to 2 double blade paddlers to cover some real distance.

The open cockpit would probally make for a lighter build. The big open cockpit would make it suitable for sleeping in.

The drawings for it are proving to be a challenge. Trying to make them simple to read without sending a 1000 pieces of paper in the package.

But making some good progress. Main hull drawings are done. First of three deck options done. Just need to grind out the rest. :roll:

Now I just need to get rid of my stinky motorboat that has not been used for years so I can build a car port so I can have a place to build a 20' boat. :twisted:

arg!!!

Got this one almost drawn out but something was nagging at me. Didn't like how I specked out the cockpit. Then inspiration struck on a better way to do it. A really simple and effective way.

Problem is I have to start almost from scratch.

<sigh> :roll:
